    poo235's Note:

    Food & Wine's One Dish Meals: "There are many versions of bread soup; this one, based on traditional peasant fare, is as thick as bread pudding. The soup is delicious on its own, but we think the steamed mussels with their broth make a wonderful addition." Wine Recommendation: "With such a regional dish, the wine almost to come from Tuscany too. Try a Rosso di Montalcine, Brunello's lighter, less costly cousin."
